The Conch Café, located in Gulf Shores, Alabama, features casual lunches with a great view of the Gulf of Mexico. To accommodate the increase in business during the summer vacation season, Fuzzy Conch, the owner, hires a large number of servers as seasonal help. When he interviews a prospective server, he would like to provide data on the amount a server can earn in tips. He believes that the amount of the bill and the number of diners are both related to the amount of the tip. He gathered the following sample information.

 Customer Amount of Tip Amount of Bill Number of Diners Customer Amount of Tip Amount of Bill Number of Diners 1 \$ 7.20 \$ 78.03 4 16 \$ 3.30 \$ 23.59 2 2 4.50 28.23 4 17 3.50 22.30 2 3 1.00 10.65 1 18 3.25 32.00 2 4 2.40 19.82 3 19 5.40 50.02 4 5 5.00 28.62 3 20 2.25 17.60 3 6 4.25 24.83 2 21 3.20 60.06 2 7 .50 6.25 1 22 3.00 20.27 2 8 6.00 49.20 4 23 1.25 19.53 2 9 5.00 43.26 3 24 3.25 27.03 3 10 4.50 46.40 4 25 3.00 21.28 2 11 5.55 57.98 5 26 6.25 43.38 4 12 6.00 34.99 3 27 5.60 28.12 4 13 4.00 33.91 4 28 2.50 26.25 2 14 3.35 23.06 2 29 3.95 55.38 7 15 .75 4.65 1 30 5.10 62.39 6

1. b-2. What is your decision regarding the null-hypothesis?

(Reject/Do not Reject) null hypothesis. At least one coefficient is (different/not different) from 0.

1. c-1. Conduct an individual test on each of the variables. What is the decision rule at the 0.05 level of significance? (Negative amounts should be indicated by a minus sign. Round your answers to 3 decimal places.)

It would be rejected if t is less than ____ or more than ______.

1. c-2. Which variable should be deleted?

(Bill only/Diner only/Neither) should be deleted.

1. Use the equation developed in part (c) to determine the coefficient of determination. (Round your answer to 2 decimal places.)
